Adrien Broner is one of the most renowned pugilists of the modern boxing era. Over the course of his prolonged boxing run, Broner made it to the news headlines effortlessly.

The former 4-division champ fought last in February against Jovanie Santiago, claiming a unanimous decision win. That said, the ‘Problem’ is currently unaligned with any opponent for his return to the ring.

However, he seems desperate to lace up the boxing gloves again. Broner recently took to his official Instagram handle and shared a screenshot of a text chain with his promoter, Al Haymon.

He captioned this screenshot by writing, “Keep me busy so I stay out of trouble I just want to box @showtimeboxing I’m in a bad place in life fuck all the money y’all giving me I just want to BOX”

For his last fight, Broner stepped inside the squared circle after almost 2 years. Prior to that, he butt heads against the Filippino Senator Manny Pacquiao in January 2019 for the latter’s WBA Welterweight title defense.

The ‘Problem’ stumbled upon a brutal unanimous decision loss in this fight and failed to leave a dent on ‘Pacman’. He subsequently went out of action, rather abruptly and returned to the ring this year against a lesser-known opponent in the form of Jovanie Santiago.

As he claimed a win in his last contest, the Ohio native is now desperate to storm back to the ring again and give his best shot once again.

He is keen on unleashing his new self in the ring, and this is principally why he’s demanding a fight from his promoter in as soon as 10-12 weeks.

He can touch gloves with several opponents on this landscape like Yordenis Ugas, Vergil Ortiz Jr, to name a few. There are many more contenders apart from the aforementioned names who can provide a decent fight to the 31-year-old.
